Sweets

As we say in Norway, I am a huge sugar butt, loving all the sweets. My all time favorite is all the chocolate, ranging from small chocolates like these almond crunch milk chocolates and peppermint cream cheese truffles to decadent lava cakes and gooey brownies.

 

But I also love all the lemon things during Winter and Spring (try these crepes!), and all the berry dishes during Summer, ranging from fresh jello to blackberry sauces and blueberry muffins. Some of the recipes are easy, but all of them are ultra delicious!
